Hello
The windows Xp installation doesent find your hardrive because you have a sata drive. you need to adjust the settings in the bios so the sata drive appears as a ordinary IDE drive(ide native) or something like that. search in the bios settings.
A other way is to burn a new winxp cd with the Toshiba Satellite U300, sata drivers.
download the http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/Back-Up-and-Recovery/Barts-PE-Builder.shtml
and download the toshiba harddrive drivers and creat a new cd.
but the simples way is to make the change in bios.
good luck

I replaced vista with xp on my Satellite L305D-S5895 and now it crashes during xp install. why?


This model Toshiba laptop has a SATA hard drive.

SATA HARD DRIVE - XP INSTALLATION
The problem is that XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on a disk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then, XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX. Go into the BIOS and disable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows has been installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver), then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive. http://www.fixya.com/support/r4335035-installing_windows_xp_sata_hard_drive

I can not install windows XP on Toshiba Satellite U300, windows


You must have latest Windows Xp CD .
Latest Motherboard chipset does not recognise hard disk without proper sata raid or sata driver. So you can install sata driver if u have USB floppy drive by downloading latest Sata raid to floppy. At the time of installation you will see a message press f6 to if u need to install raid driver.then press f6 asking for floppy drive and floppy insert press enter to continue.

I cnt install win xp on my toshiba u300 laptop .....when i start installing window xp on my toshiba u300 there came that it didnt detect any hard drive on computer ... plz tell if u hav any solution 4...


If your laptop is like mine, it'll have a setting in Bios that needs to be changed in order to support XP.
In my laptop, there was a setting called Native SATA driver or something similar of that nature.
It took me quite some time to go through forums in order to find that out. Once that setting was changed, the notebook found the hard drive and I was able to install Windows XP.

Installation of windows xp on a preloaded windows vista laptop


See this , you have to download the SATA driver , as you have a SATA hard disk , then slipstream it into the xp installation package.

Alternatively , put the driver on a floppy and press F2 when prompted during the setup when its loading all the files (It says Press F2 if you want t o install a SATA Driver"

Then it will detect your drive and install as normal :D

You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.
